Just depends on what mood Pickford is in...think he helped them win last season with a error and been a bit iffy just got away with it so far.

Jonas Lössl is tall (1.95m) but not a great keeper, so they are stuck with Piggie

that's a real weak spot for them

I was bored...

Staying with City till the end of the season is not surprising (frankly, you have to be pretty naive or in deep denial not to see that he wanted to from the start). What is surprising, is that he neve

Crazy to think that we have the 4th best defence in the PL so far. We might not have a good defence, but ManU, Pool conceded the same number of goals (or more) today than we in all 4 games (or City in the last 2).  Defending seems a lost art in modern footy.

Barkley wasn't good enough to be a starter for us. But it's insane that we've sent him out and kept RLC who isn't as good.

Was a good bench option against tired legs or as a cup player. 

No, but this way he gets to do more damage against rival teams :D

Patrice Evra In Tears As He Offers To End His Contract At Sky Sports Live On Air

“I dont promote the violence” did he not kick a fan in the face pre match after the warm up 🤣 the guys a clown. 

The passion is good but him and Neville continuing to not mention Ole’s obvious short comings is a bit of a shambles. You could break that game down tactically as well as the Palace game and Palace game and its clear That despite player performances that tactically there are huge issues.

United could be sitting 12th with 5 games to go and they still wouldn’t be criticising Ole who is an average manager who only kept his job with that his 18 or 19 game run last season if I am honest including when Bruno Fermandes arrived. They were a mess. Could give that guy 5 of the best players in the world and theyd still be a mess. Suppose when your ex team mates are pundits on your game you get some leeway.

FUCK Stan Collymore

 

Stan Collymore claims Premier League clubs should have been banned from buying players

More than £1billion has been spent during the transfer window but clubs further down the pyramid are facing battles to survive

Regarding Liverpool and kloop I also remember that Dortmund under kloop fared worse after a couple of seasons. 

And I wonder if it's the same thing that happens to any bielsa team? 

Too much running and pressing that after 2 season or so the players are out. 

Bielsa team can play amazing fútbol but they never sustain because the demand on them is so high that they burn out. 

I wonder if it's the same with a kloop team?

Dont agree about clubs being banned from buying players for instance but the point he is trying to make is right. These billionaire owners and clubs should be trying to help lower league clubs out. To preserve these leagues and these clubs.

This Liverpool result could still be a one-off. Mane and Thiago to return, plenty of deflections went in yesterday

It was more than likely but again Leeds exposed Liverpools defence on their first game and other teams will again. Also still better finishing from Villa and they would of been on 10 goals or plus. Easily. Barkley had decent chances, Grealish also could have sealed his hattrick and then Watkins hit the bar. It was bad enough but imagine it got even worse.

I think it will be after that. Could argue signs were there v Leeds. 

Makes it even more maddening that we tried to sit in and didn’t make any real forceful attempt to impose ourselves and go at them in our match prior to going down to 10.

More then likely but still funny..considering they went unbeaten for so long last season then to lose 7-2...and with all players on the field. Woopsie!
